Durst Case Scenario: Midterm Madness

November 1–3, 2018

Valley Center Stage

Fresh from the national tour of his award- winning, hilarious chronicle of the changes in America during the Time of Trump, comedian, columnist, actor, author, former margarine smuggler, Will Durst is proud to announce he’s updated his hysterical historical Durst Case Scenario, with a colon and a subtitle - Midterm Madness. The Durst Case Scenario: Midterm Madness is a lightening paced, 85 minute playful & ludicrous & whimsical & droll & silly & serious & sarcastic, mischievous, incisive, trenchant, profound, & chock full of jokes, comedic tour-de-force. Durst, described by the New York Times as “possibly the best political comic working today,” analyzes the first year and a half of Donald Trump’s Reign of Error by detailing where we are, how we got here and the myriad of destinations that may lie ahead. And what the chances are, we’ll be fighting with dogs for food once we get there. Chronicling the latest results of the game of musical chairs in the Oval Office, Durst also describes the wacky zany antics, palace intrigues and potholes and pitfalls of polarization that threaten our country, hemisphere, planet, solar system and universe, in this, The New Abnormal.

Adults recommended due to some naughty language and indelible images.

“Equal parts therapy and comedy. Prepare to meet the funny side of defiance.” -- Joint Forces Journal

“Be thankful for Durst to help us keep our heads on straight.” -- Gaetana Caldwell-Smith, All Events Review
